Summer 2016 Disbursement Dates

ATTENTION: Your first summer disbursement will NOT arrive until ALL grades have been entered and Satisfactory Academic Progress has been processed for ALL students.  Due to this, if you attended Spring semester you are not likely to receive your first disbursement until MAY 19th, thank you for your patience!

The Pell Grant may be available during Summer for some students. Students will receive an email notification in mid-April informing them if they have Summer funding available. The Pell Grant is disbursed in one payment during the Summer; however, as more units begin, a student may become entitled to more funding throughout the Summer which would be paid out on one of the below disbursement dates. Contact your technician with questions.
